About This Image

Rufous female hummingbird feeding from yellow iris, behind fence on our driveway. Captured from front open window with telephoto lens. Didn't know the hummers fed from these Iris, first time I've seen this.

thanks so much, Anne for the lovely comment. Apologies for only just finding it, many months later :)

Alandra, this is beautiful beyond words. An angel realm unaware that it has slipped into our dimension. Purity and loveliness in your wonderful picture.

thankyou Karen for the nice comments. That's a good point, hadn't thought of it that way : ) Was just surprised to see the hummer feeding from the iris.

Great capture. This bird is smart. It found a flower it can sit on while it feeds! Well done.

glad you like it, Marsha Sea and Carol, thanks for the nice comments. It was surprising to me to see the hummer at this yellow Iris yesterday.

thankyou, Alex D for the nice praise, - have been quite surprised at how the wings have been showing up lately : ) I like the way her tiny feet show up in this one, resting on the Iris petal : )

Wow. You are becoming an expert hummingbird photographer. You are starting to get their wings with little movement as though they are frozen in space.
